Contrary to what the "Occupy Movement" might tell you, it's not just greedy Wall Street executives (though they certainly earned their share of scorn). It's not just failed regulation (even though Washington has failed miserably, both Republicans and Democrats, to protect us). As one of America's top financial professionals reveals in this shocking new book, the failures of Wall Street and Washington have opened us up to economic warfare, with our foreign enemies exploiting our lurking financial weaknesses. In Secret Weapon, Kevin D. Freeman unveils how all the evidence-- including motive, means, and opportunity--points to America's foreign enemies as deliberately pushing our economy over the brink. He doesn't deny the culpability of Washington and Wall Street but rather demonstrates how their bad actions have created a new vulnerability that could ultimately destroy the American way of life. In this stunning expose, Freeman reveals: The evidence linking rogue elements in Communist China, Russia, and Islamic finance to economic warfare against the United States; Why initial reports linked the 2008 stock market crash to economic terrorism--and why the Obama administration continues to look the other way; How the financial attack unfolded--and how the perpetrators tried to cover their tracks; Why you should expect another financial attack even more devastating than the last one--and how you can protect yourself from it. In Secret Weapon you'll learn what our enemies know and what Washington has chosen to ignore--that our financial system is profoundly vulnerable to financial terrorism, and that we are being targeted for further and even more destructive attacks by our enemies, who want to cripple America as the world's leading economy. If you want to protect yourself and protect our country, then you need to read Secret Weapon to understand how we have entered a new age of warfare--an age our enemies want to make the Dark Ages of the United States.--

Oh, wow, dude, it was really those Chinese-Commie-Islamo-Fascists and their helpers from outer space, or something! This book is sheer farce, and appears too similar to that vid that person or persons were attempting to spread around the Web in 2008 (they failed big time). They shipped all the jobs, technology and investment to China, now they're shipping the blame as well? No, the credit default swap and CDO variants originated within JPMorgan Chase, as did carbon derivatives, the latest installment of "shadow banking" - - and the Koch brothers pushed energy derivatives big time, as well. The usual suspects: JPMorgan Chase, Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, Bank of America, Citigroup, Wells Fargo, Deutsche Bank, UBS, GE, AT&T and many private equity/leveraged buyout firms. Causes of global economic meltdown: the trinity of ultra-leveraging, ultra-leveraged speculation and ultra-leveraged insurance swindles (using naked swaps, or uncovered credit default swaps). [It was the bond market which collapsed - - those flash crashes of the NYSE were brought about thanks to Goldman Sachs' HFT software - - see articles on Sergey Aleynikov.] SERIOUS WARNING: the author is a hedge fund guy, and Perseus Distribution is owned by a hedge fund/PE firm at the time of publication.
